Here’s One For A Rainy Day

Go to Hit the random article link.

Hit the link over and over again and read the articles until you’re bored – but make sure to learn at least a few new things about the world.

Now go through your day. See whether the thing(s) you learned become relevant or appear in your life. For example, I did this a couple of days ago and learned about a tropical fruit called rambutan, which I’d never heard of and which is some freaky-lookin’ stuff. The next day I was in Whole Foods and there was a sampler plate of…you guessed it.

Report your findings.



  1. Did you eat the rambutan? It is one of the most delicious fruits there is. Very refreshing, especially on a hot day.

  2. Now I’m going to see it, too. That’s the way that kind of phenomenon works, you know? You draw to you that on which you focus. So, it’s so very important to be careful about your focal point. I’m really curious about that fruit now. I’m not even going to wait until the fates bring it my way. Soon I’ll go after it eagerly and seek it out at…Trader Joe’s, the poor hippy’s Whole Foods!

  3. Trader Joe’s won’t have fresh rambutan, presentpeace. You can buy canned rambutans in syrum in most Chinese supermarkets, or even at Vietnamese supermarkets or Thai markets. Not sure you can buy them at Korean or Japanese supermarkets. I have never seen a fresh rambutan in the States, which makes me wonder: Robert, did you see the red fruit with spikes, or was it peeled and looked like it could have come out of a can? They might sell fresh rambutans in Canada.

  4. Furry. Looked like a tiny red squirrel had exploded.
